I could buy a copper miner like FCX, but there future is mostly based on a single commodity, mined in a single country.

Actually the FCX mine is not only a huge copper deposit but is the world's largest gold mine to boot. But I agree that Indonesia is the country, and I don't consider it stable although I might be wrong. Also things like cave ins can occur. They had one in the open pit some years ago, and it took them something like a year to recover. During that period, the stock of FCX was murdered.
